HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my American friends!!! I hope that you are all pleasantly stuffed with your food of choice. I know I’m looking forward to seeing and reading about all the scrumptiousness on your blogs. Is anyone planning on walking your meals off while shopping on Black Friday? I have some crazy co-workers who brave the line ups (and the border) to catch some great deals.
My morning started out early as the babes had appointments to get their immunizations. DD got the regular flu shot and poor DS got the second half of the H1N1 in one arm and the flu shot in the other. What a trooper. I had no time for oats so I made a quick bowl of cereal. So quick, in fact, that I forgot to take a picture of it! Luckily, I still have the boxes. I had 1 cup of this one;
½ cup of that one;
Seeing as breakfast came an hour early, snack time did, too! I brought a Pumpkin Nut Muffin along to enjoy with my morning Stash.
I always keep snacks on the lighter side for Thursday’s because I know I can’t get into the gym for a sweat sesh at lunch.
Speaking of lunch, guess what I did on mine today? BAKE! Yup, you read that right! I’ve wanted to make Mama Peas Vegan Energy Bars for a while now and decided I had enough time to get it done in my allotted hour.
See? Don’t they look mouth watering??? I also put some turkey sausages and barley into the crock pot for dinner tonight. I reasoned that working until 4:30 and then having to leave the house at 5:10 for skating lessons wouldn’t leave a whole lot of time for cooking dinner. And DS had to be on the ice at 5 so my hubby couldn’t help out.
While busy doing all this, my lunch was busy getting toasty AND melty in the oven! I topped 2 slices of sun dried tomato bread with goat’s milk brie and popped it in the oven with the bars.
On the side was some cottage cheese mixed with pumpkin puree, cinnamon and agave;
All together it made for a fab, filling lunch!
These were a HUGE hit with the fam. By the time I got home from work all the centre pieces were a thing of the past! (I cut the batch into 12 squares). DS told me that the energy they gave him made him “super fast” at practice. LOL!!
I ate my dinner after skating lessons. Just a turkey sausage and some barely because we are all out of veggies!! I’m not happy about that but I’ll be doing groceries this weekend so I’ll be stocking up big time. Anyways, here’s my monochromatic plate;
I had a piece of Endangered Species chocolate for a sweet end.
I’ll soon be settling in to watch CSI and The Vampire Diaries. Looking forward to the relaxation.
Bye for now!!
